I love my country life but there are hard times. Last night we had to put Chugga down, she was incoherent, acting blind & deaf, shaking and convulsing. My poor ds - she was his dog; she loved him and was content to just be with him. Since he got his license, he would take them everywhere with him. It's very sad. She was a good dog, she had a good life - but it's still so hard to let her go.
